Every writer knows that reading others' work stretches our own minds and improves our own writing and techniques. That's why most writers have a To-Be-Read pile to die for...or one so large it just might kill them.
But as irony sometimes shows up in writing - that's a good thing.
Here's a book I can't wait to get my hands on. The cover is totally glam, and the story sounds unique. Moreover, Bethany Wiggins--the author--is a talent and fabulous person rolled up into one.
After bouncing from foster home to foster home, Magdalene Mae is transferred to what should be her last foster home in the tiny town of Silver City, New Mexico. Now that she's eighteen and has only a year left in high school, she's determined to stay out of trouble and just be normal. Agreeing to go to the prom with Bridger O'Connell is a good first step. Fitting in has never been her strong suit, but it's not for the reasons most people would expect-it all has to do with the deep secret that she is a shape shifter. But even in her new home danger lurks, waiting in the shadows to pounce. They are the Skinwalkers of Navajo legend, who have traded their souls to become the animal whose skin they wear-and Maggie is their next target.
Full of romance, mysticism, and intrigue, this dark take on Navajo legend will haunt readers to the final page.
What do you think? Will you add this to your TBR pile? If you do, why not tweet it and let Bethany know.
